    Oh my word, has any one got a idea on hooks i went to bass pro shop and bought 1 package of stainless steel #5 and they were 30 bucks for 100 hooks. After the other things i picked up the total was 80 bucks, my 1 sack that did not look any bigger than a sandwich bag.......lol. Is it me or is someone taking advantage of my love of fishing.....lol

    Not gettin stainless would have saved ya a ton of money. However, if stainless is what ya need then ya gotta do it. Fishin alot of salt water? If not it may be a bit over kill.
